Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner - Black
thathoneydip 5/3/2013 9:10:00 AM
If you are a gel/cream liner junkie like I am, you absolutely HAVE to give this a try. I purchased this product last year at cvs because I like experimenting with new gel and cream liners. I've heard good things about it too. unfortunately, being the junkie and hoarder I am, I just recently started using it. ( I have so many eyeliners open, I try to wait till I finish each one. ) I just recently finished my black gel liner by Physicians Formula and honestly thought that was my new HG because I was using Estée launders but that baby isn't cheap. So I decided to give this one a try next, ( I have a bunch of gel liners I haven't opened yet, waiting for me to use.. Hoarder alert. ) and to be honest, I wasn't expecting much at all because of the frail packaging and bulky brush. I gave the ELF one a try and ended of throwing it away in disgust After a couple uses, so I didn't think much of this one either because they're both around the same cost.. Boy, was I wrong. This has become my new all. Time favorite liner . It is so creamy and pigmented , I was shocked. The color pay off is freaking awesome. The staying power? Just as equally awesome. I would go to school at 11am , then go to work at 10pm and it would still be in the same spot I left it by the time I got off at. 7 am. Unlike other eyeliners ( essence) I don't need to set this with a shadow or anything because its great on its own. The brush, I use for filling my brows, so it's put in good use. The cost just makes this product all that much better. My only complaint is the poor packaging. Many other say that it dries out because of the flimsy plastic cap, I wasn't going to wait to find out. Even though this only cost me a few bucks, I wasn't going to waste any of it because I love it so much. I depotted it into another gel liner container I had that was empty. So far, so good.
I ordered this product about a 3weeks ago and expected it to come about 2 weeks after, but instead, it ended up coming a 3 days after. I was so excited to try it out, seeing that all the gurus i watch on youtube use this product. i am a huge concealer junkie, so you can only imagine my excitement. I have many palettes from coastal scents and they are wonderful products considering the price. So i had high expectations for this palette.. which met almost all of them. The palette itself, like alot of coastal scent's palettes are kind of cheap looking, but overall sturdy. Inside, you are presented with a total of 10 ( yes, i said 10 ) different shades of concealers. Ranging from cool undertones, and warm. Of course, you are able to mix the concealers to get your perfect shade and undertone, which is something i could never find. A great thing about this palette is that you can use it year round. Lighter colors for winter, darker for summer.. ect. I am an NC 25 - 30 and i am able to use all 10 of the concealers. There are a couple shades that are kind of too peachy colored to be used alone, but i use those as corrective colored concealers for dark circles under my eyes ( aaaahhhmazing ! ) And there are 4 shades that i can use to contour with seeing that they are easily blended.. i just make sure i set everything after i apply to avoid my face melting off. The concealers are very very creamy at first, but after a while, they did dry up a little bit. So instead of " very very creamy " , theyre just " creamy " . That being said, they blend very easily. These concealers can be worn as medium coverage when using minimal product to full on coverage when built up. However, despite being a full coverage concealer, it will not look cakey if your face is moisturized and / or primed ( or they will feel and look dry on the skin ) .. if worn under the eyes, BE SURE to moisturize and / or prime under the eye area to avoid the product from caking. The concealers are very pigmented , so a little does go a long way. The staying power is pretty good. It will last me almost all day without having to touch up at all. The only thing i was disappointed with was the amount of product for each individual concealer . I dont know why, i just expected the concealers in the palette to be larger than they are. But for the price ( originally $ 16.95 , but i got it on sale for $ 11.02 .. why the two cents, i dont know ) i dont know why im complaining. Overall great product . Definitely worth the price, and i would recommend
im going to start off by saying i absolutely love this glitter! It's silver with rainbow reflexes. It's absolutely gorgeous. However its not the finest, but it is workable. i suggest putting a silver shadow on first, to make it look more smoother. Then i apply a thin even layer of LaSplash's eyeshadow sealer/base as an adhesive and apply the glitter. It stays on all day with barely any fallout. This is also another glitter from NYX i like to put a thin line under my lower lash line. Lovelovelovee!
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Midnight Blue
thathoneydip 5/15/2012 12:48:00 PM
ive had this product for a very long time, however ive never opened it. I used black on most days, and eggplant on days i want to give black a break, you know, nothing too dark. I Just tried this on today, and i LOVE IT! I prefer midnight blue then eggplant. Its pretty dark, not as dark as my beloved black though. In low lighting , it looks close to black. However in normal lighting, its a gorgeous dark blue that adds a bit of sophistication to your look. It lasted me all day without fading or smudging. the pot contains a lot of product, 4.5g. My only complain is that this line of liners tends to dry within a 3 or 4 months for me.. thats why i took off 2 lippies. *teartear
This product has by far the best staying power ive seen on any foundation. It has amazing coverage without looking cakey when applied right. And has a nice finish. It is a little on the pricey side, but it is a high end brand. However, it is worth ever single penny if you find your shade. They have a wide range of shades, so finding your shade is likely. However, being asian, i have really warm undertones. I am an NC 25 - 30 and the 'sand' shade (2w1) is too light but the 'tawny' is a little too dark. I guess i would be more closer to tawny..i dont know, i have both to mix to get the perfect color. BUT! Even though both shades are warm, they show up still too greyish on me in the sunlight. I get this problem with a lot of foundations.. actually i get this with almost all foundations. When i step out into the sun, or into a well lit area, my face will either look too orange, pink or grey. its very frustrating. I wear this mainly when i go out at night, when i know i need a foundation to last me all night. I normally mix this with my moisturizer since i dont need alot of coverage ( and it lasts me longer ). Definitely suggest this item.
I purchased this product a few days ago at Ulta for less than $4.00 because of the great reviews on here. Ive read just about all 58 reviews.. im a gel/cream liner fanatic. And once i saw the ratings and reviews, i knew i had to go grab me one. Especially since its under $5 ! Ive used too many gel/cream liners to count, ive had my share. And i always want to try something new, you know, switch it up a bit. Ive tried fluidline, sonia kashuk, estee lauder, clinique, wet n wild, L'oreal , physicians formula, maybelline, ect.. (estee lauder being my HG eyeliner but i like to rotate all of the few i have open so they dont dry ) But this.. This eyeliner may be the eyeliner of all liners to make me actually remain faithful to for many reasons : i bought this in Midnight in Paris, which is a dark matted black. It is very pigmented and rich in color, and best of all, its actually black.. a pure black. Black Black. Its texture is super creamy and applies unbelievably smooth.. like half way melted butter. It's staying power is amazing. Ive tried alot of high end liners, and this compares to most if not all of them. I, however, do not have oily lids, so i never really have any issues with gel/cream liners transferring anywhere. But ive had some eyeliners flake off and/or fade on me over time.. and this baby is not one of them! Ive put this on before i go to work (8am) and came home, and went back out (without touching up) to come back home (sometimes midnight or later) to an eyeliner that looks as if i had just applied it! Can you believe that?! All without a primer. No Fading No Flaking No Smudging The packaging is nothing really to complain about. For Less than $4? Its actually pretty good compared to alot of different gel/cream liners. It ACTUALLY screws on tight. So the product doesnt dry up as quickly like other Lower cost brands .. * cough cough WetnWild cough cough * The product comes in a little glass jar with a black plastic lid that screws on pretty tightly. Inside this jar is 3g of product ( same as MAC's Fluidline and Estee lauders Stay-In-Place gel liner ) I mainly put gel liners on my top lid and wing it out (so i end up using quite a bit of liner ) , but ive also put this on my waterline and its stayed put perfectly fine. Estee lauder was my HG eyeliner that i would go to every time i know i needed a liner that would stay in place without me worrying about it moving , fading, or flaking off. Not to mention the fact that the product stayed creamy for almost 7 or 8 months now. HOWEVER, my HG eyeliner is like almost $22! My biggest problem with gel/cream liner is the product drying up before i even get to finish it. So far estee lauder's , MAC's , and clinique's have managed to stay creamy until i finished it.. unfortunately they've all drilled holes in my pockets. ( They eventually add up ) So if this Lower cost eyeliner can manage to stay creamy until i am able to finish it then i think ive found myself a new HG eyeliner! Few days in, and all is well. im going to keep my fingers crossed, and if anything changes.. if i see the SLIGHTEST sign of it even pulling away from the sides, ill let you all know. :) im definitely going to buy more backups though. WARNINGG!! make sure you open your product before you buy.. or you may end up going home with a product imprinted with someones grubby fingers :)
i enjoy this blush a lot. The packaging is a slick black very similar to NARS . Very sturdy. When first applied it is nice and sheer, but you are able to build on this blush. I love wearing this when i want a very natural flush. The staying power is decent. Easily blended and only $3! will be repurchasing
Moisturizers -Lancome - Lancome Bienfait Aqua Vital moisturizer

pretty nice moisturizer. i use put this on before bed or going out at night because it doesnt have any SPF, and it just sinks right into my skin, leaving it fresh and moisturized. Its oil free. The product itself has a great fresh scent. in the jar, i seems to be thick and heavy, but when applied onto skin, it liquefies.. if that makes sense. Overall great product i just wish it had a lil SPF in it. Will be repurchasing
What a great moisturizer! It has a pleasant cucumber smell. It feels light on and it leaves my refreshed , never greasy. It has anti-oxidants and SPF15 which ofcourse is a plus. Since it does has SPF, i wear this during the day (Lancomes bienfait aqua vital at night ) on top of my idealist and together they leave my skin feeling smooth, and clean. It is also to be said it helps prevents the first signs of aging.. i dont know if thats true but overall, great moisturizer.
Eye Makeup Remover -Estee Lauder - Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
thathoneydip 5/9/2012 12:58:00 PM
im surprised this got such horrid reviews. This is a pretty good makeup remover. Definitely gentle on the eyes. It removes makeup pretty well, however when it comes to waterproof mascara, you may have to break out lancomes bi-facil lol
Overall a pretty good palette, i must say.. especially considering that it was dirt cheap. This palette comes with 12 decently pigmented eyeshadows, each are 2g of product. It also comes with an applicator that i normally just toss out, and a mini pencil eye liner in black. The eyeliner smudges like crazy, so you will probably have to set it with a shadow for it to stay in place. I absolutely hate the packaging, but it didnt really effect my wallet. So im not really complaining. The eyeshadows itself is worth the $5 i got it for.
definitely one of my favorite concealers, if not my favorite. It is very moisturizing and not cakey at all. Its coverage is light to medium i would say. i use this under my eyes so its perfect for me since i dont need much coverage under there. Despite the packaging being unsanitary, it is a terrific product to just throw in your makeup bag. It is a very convenient size. i really hope they do not discontinue this product. Definitely something worth trying out if youre looking for something light, non-cakey, and moisturizing.
Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand - Nicka K. High Definition Eyeshadow

Amazing quality eyeshadows for such a low price. Theyre pigmented, blend rather well, and they come with alot of product in them! A MAC eyeshadow comes with 1.5g of product while these eyeshadows come with 4g! Eyeshadows that are almost as amazing as MAC's with almost 3times as much product. I have alot of these gems. But my all time favorite is #3031 which is a complete dupe of MAC's stars and rockets .. my favorite!! i Loved it so much i got a backup. i got probably 9 of them because they were having a sale at my local beauty store.. 3 for $2! Amazing. The packaging is kinda cheap but its the product that were paying for right? They also dont really have names.. they go by numbers. All the eyeshadows i purchased have a satin finish, however, im not quite sure if thats the finish for all of them. If you see these babies, give a couple of them a try. i promise you wont regret it.
i absolutely lovee this product. I have a yellow undertone and it looks wonderful on my lids. Every time i wear this , i always get at least 2 compliments. There's just as much product in this container as a paint pot for MAC (5g). ive had mine for a very long time and barely even made a dent in it. The product itself is incredible. A deep burgundy with purple shimmers in it. Amazingly pigmented! Beautiful color pay off. It's so creamy, rich, and smooth. It is able to blend without any effort what so ever. Like i said, ive had this for a while.. maybe 6 or 7 months, and its still just as creamy and rich as it was when i first opened it!! Thats a huge plus for me. Works wonderful as a base, or by itself. You are able to blend this product for a sheer soft look, or add another layer or two to make it more opaque. Either way, once dried the creme product is Not budging at all! It really is a "double wear stay-in-place" product. However, it is easily taken off when you want to take it off. Personally, Ive experienced absolutely no creasing or fading what so ever. I have about 6 other different shades, but this is by far my favorite. I definitely recommend to check it out. It was worth every penny.
absolutely love this glitter liner. I was very skeptical about this liner. It came in a trio for the holidays. But then i saw a bunch of youtube guru's recommending it, i had to swipe it and give it a try. I believe they sell them individually now. The product itself is clear but it has a bunch of gold glitters in it.. i dont know why it is called copper because the glitters are gold. The little plastic bottle comes with .169 fl oz in it. i wear a black gel liner everyday, and to spice it up a bit, i normally put a thin line of this glitter liner on top of it. It looks amazing. Nothing over the top though.i get soo many compliments. It lasts on me all day. I have no problems with the glitter getting all over the place. Def. suggest to everyone. it was only $1 ! what do you have to lose?! i could find 100 pennies on the ground haha.
